SGA OKs resolution against tuition increase


By Nlcole Heumphreus
Staff Writer

The Student Government Associ-
ation Senate last night passed a res-
olution against the tuition increases
proposed by the state Council on
Higher Education.

The resolution said the possible
8180 increase will “decrease access
to higher education for Kentucky

Senator at Large Misty Weaver,
who co-sponsored the resolution,
said students need to speak up if
they oppose the increase.

“The president (of the council)
thought most people were in sup-
port of the increase," Weaver said.
“Without students coming out
against the (increase), he will con-

co-sponsored the resolution, said it
was not right for the council to
“change the rules (for increasing
tuition) in the middle of the game.”

Weaver agreed: “(The council)
can't increase tuition just before the
199394 year begins, and it can’t
assume that every student’s parents
are paying for their education."

Weaver said one student told her
that the increase would mean the

buying books.

Clinton: Lifting of ban
requires conduct code


By Donna Cassata

WASHINGTON — President
Clinton tried to defuse opposition to
lifting the ban on homosexuals in
the military yesterday. pledging on
the eve of his proposal that a strict
code governing sexual conduct
would accompany any policy
change. Republicans readied for a
fight just the same.

Clinton focused on fellow Demo-

crats, telephoning Sen. Sam Nunn
and inviting Nunn and other Armed
Services Committee Democrats to
an evening meeting at the White

Nunn, probably the most influen-
tial senator on military matters, rc-
cited a litany of reasons for keeping
the ban in a Senate floor speech.
However, in a switch of tone from
earlier criticism of Clinton‘s han-
dling of the issue, he also said, “It's

y UK jazz musician
taking to the streets


Dave Lavender
Arts Editor

If the mountain won't come to
Mohammed, then Mohammed must
go to the mountain.

It is upon this ancient philosophy
that L’K music education senior
Keith McCutchen takes jazz to the
streets of downtown Lexington.

For the fourth year. jazz music —
rarely heard and a seldom scene in
Lexington — will be showcased in
the Radisson Plaza Hotel tonight at

thing. The intention (is), as we build
up the proceeds, we actually make a

McCutchen and his wife Linda, the
annual downtown celebration of lo-
cal jazz musicians has come a long
way since its inception in the late
19803. when there was only one
sponsor for the event.

“The different locations down-
town and trying to make it accessi-
ble by using regional and local art-
ists is just a way to expose people
to the music and a nice evening

at" McCutchen said. “People get
jazz around here. but it’s usually in
a club or big groups come in and
it's in a university setting."

in the beginning, McCutchen.
who is performing tonight with llut-
ist Cheryl Skinner. had a hard time
drumming up support for his e\ent.

"We hope to have a national act
by the next one we do outdoors over
the summer or by next fall. That‘s
not to conflict with any pre-existing
events, but I don‘t think that Lex-
ington is so overbooked With things
to do that there couldn‘t be some-
thing else."

With Skinner, McCuichen will be
unveiling some of the duct music
for which he won a $1,500 grant
from the Kentucky Arts Council.

Statt Critic

Looking for some music you can
dance to?

You‘ve got a lot of options these
days. You could try the technos,
who hide behind walls of comput-
ers, spinning viciously mechanical
beats that have all the warmth of a
vengeful ex-girlfriend. They’ll get
you jumping.

You could try rap music, where
the unrelenting bass threatens to
pulverize your body at any mo-
ment. You could check out the
slick, skillfully calculated. fluff pop
that Paula Abdul & Company spit
out every now and then.

Or you could try the Fleshtones.

daughters, Bibby (Kathy Bates) and
Norma (Marcis Gay Harden), are
somewhat less than stable.

The band's new album, Power-
.rtamrrr, is a set of wonderfully un-
polished garage-rock tunes with a
sense of humor. Give ’em a 94 —

The best song on this album is
“Living Legends," which absolute-

The playing on Powerslunce is
very loose. Guitarist Keith Streng
owns a fairly decent vocabulary of
chops and even manages to latch
onto a really neat hook once in a
while. He doesn't have a distinctive,
instantly recognizable sound like his
collaborator in the Full Time Men.
REM‘s Peter Buck, nor the raw fury
of Kurt Cobain or Johnny Ramone,
but he gets the job done admirably.

Zaremba adds some boisterous
harmonica, and drummer Bill Mil-
hizer occasionally pulls off some se-
quences worth picking up a couple
pencils and tapping on a chair. It
isn‘t too smooth. but that's precisely
why the album works so well.

that it presents life’s obstacles and

way. One laugh follows another in
this story about accepting what has
